  3. Favorite authors, reliable reviews, friends recommendations. I have way too many books on my TBR shelves to step out to most new-to-me authors unless their books sounds so amazing, has high ratings & reviews...then I will go for it.

  20. I have many authors that I follow, and I look at reviews (goodreads/amazon) and some blogging recommendations!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like to look at established bloggers as my best option.Ignoring the ratings they give, I read the reasoning. That way, I can get a better idea of if I'll enjoy a book. Star ratings are nice, but they're kind of arbitrary values. If blogs aren't an option, I cautiously do the same with Amazon or goodreads reviews, ignoring stars but reading the reviews. But that's how I am with most things - I like understanding why people feel the way they do. And this way, you can avoid those 1 * reviews where a person just says they hate the genre. Well if you hate it, why'd you pick up the book? Unless it was unclear what the story's about, no excuse. Gather evidence/facts and draw my own conclusions, I always say!

    ReplyDelete
  22. If the summary or cover grabs my attention. If I read a previous book by the authors and enjoyed it, their next book is an automatic read for me. Thank you so much for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  29. Reviews play a big part, but a really interesting blurb is a big part too.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I know my own taste pretty well so I can often tell whether something's a 'me' book from the synopsis, otherwise an excerpt of the author's writing will do the trick. I also look for reviews from bloggers with similar taste to me.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I go by recommendations and I follow a few blogs that read the stuff as myself

  47. I read some reviews, but I also do a lot of general book browsing, both online and in book stores.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I rely on a combination of reviews and recommendations to decide which books to read. There are certain book bloggers whose tastes are very similar to mine, so if they rate a book highly whose blurb doesn't initially appeal to me, I'll still put it on my TBR list. I also have a network of friends with discerning taste, so again, if any of them rave about a book that on it's face doesn't seem all that appealing to me, I'm definitely going to check the book out anyway. And of course, it's an automatic, lightning-fast TBR-add if the premise looks appealing *and* the people whose opinions I trust endorse it.

    Thank you for the giveaway! :)

  73. Sometimes from reviews and recommendations, especially from people who I know tend to like the same books I like. Once I find a book I like then any other books by that author are added to my list. Sometimes an advertisement for a book will catch my eye, or I'll see one at the library that has an interesting cover and check it out.

  85. reviews to a point, but books like movies are so subjective, I also go by genre (for instance I love YA Dystopian so even without past experience with an author I would be willing to take a chance reading this genre), past experience with reading from a particular author (Andrea Amy)
